Youth Ministry

The Youth Ministry at The Lake of the Woods Church exists to RESCUE young people.  We seek to do this as we Reach non-believing students with the Gospel of Christ, begin to develop a desire in them to Exalt God with their life and to challenge the growing to Serve God by serving others.  We seek to Connect the teens with other Christians, and to Upsurge them in their faith.  By this they will be an Example, thus fulfilling 1 Timothy 4:12.  “Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young.  Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.”

OUR PURPOSE / LOCALLY

We desire to share the Gospel of Christ with teenagers in Orange County Virginia and the surrounding area.  As we disciple them in their walk with God and establish them in our church family here at The Lake of the Woods Church, we equip them and then send them back out to their families, the local schools and our communities to share the love of God with others.  

OUR PURPOSE / GLOBALLY

In preparing our teens to live their faith out loud as an active part of the greater church today, we also realize that they are the future of the church.  We desire to equip and prepare young people who will be bold, sold out followers of Jesus no matter what career or field they are called to.  Christian men and women who will be a living testimony and example to Jesus wherever He calls them to be.  As we see young adults moving from Orange Virginia to other cities, states and even countries, we rejoice that God has allowed us to be a part of sending His message of love and grace globally to others.

HIGHER GROUNDS

Join us every Sunday morning at 9:30 AM for Higher Grounds Youth Worship Experience.  The fun begins across the hall in Koinonia Kafe where we serve free breakfast every week.  At 10:00 AM we move into the worship room for a time of praise led by our Youth Praise Band and a sermon geared towards today’s teens.  Higher Grounds is for teens in grades 6 – 12.  Come out and join us and get your feet planted at High Grounds!  

YOUTH GROUP FOR MIDDLE SCHOOL / HIGH SCHOOL

Every Wednesday evening (from September to June), teens come together for Youth Group. The evening begins with dinner in Friendship Hall at 6:00 PM.  After dinner, teens and leaders move to the Worship Center for Praise & Worship and a message.  At 7:00 PM High School students play a sport or activity while Middle School students go to their CORE groups (gender and age specific).  At 7:30 PM High School students go to their CORE groups (gender and age specific) while Middle School students play a sport or activity. This is a great time for teens to connect with their friends and enjoy digging into God’s Word!
